Grass Sticks Announces Bamboo Canoe Paddles

Colorado's Grass Sticks have just announced a canoe paddle made from bamboo. Each paddle is crafted from kiln-dried Calcutta bamboo and offers incredible strength-to-weight ratio and a medium/stiff flex that's easy on your body. All paddle blades have a 10° bent shaft/blade.

While carbon, fiberglass and other materials rely on a thin wall to reduce weight, bamboo’s thick walls provide a strong yet lightweight paddle, letting you paddle longer and harder. Plus, it feels great in your hand, and the fibers’ natural flex let you feel the reaction of the water.

Blade Material:

  • Foam core carbon fiber with a bamboo veneer, for reduced weight and increased blade buoyancy. 
  • Fiberglass, available in multiple designs and colors (Green Grass, Midnight Blue & Burgundy), for excellent durability and abrasion resistance in shallow rocky rivers.

Blade Size:

  • 100in2 Can be best for larger paddlers. Will result in a slower paddling cadence.
  • 88in2 - For all, including smaller paddlers. Will result in a faster paddling cadence with reduced stress on your body.

Paddle Length: Determining your custom paddle length is quick and easy! Figure it out here.

Grip Type

  • Palm Grip
  • T Grip

Grass Sticks also hand sands multiple layers of marine-grade coating, giving each shaft a durable, beautiful finish that stays soft and grippy when wet. All Grass Sticks products are backed up by a 2-year unlimited warranty. Paddles are $184 U.S. (Carbon Fiber is extra).
